I am sure I am not the only athlete who walks their dog most days, currently I have to edit to change walk to Walk Dog. If I walk I walk at a cracking pace, but, with my aging dog , lucky to make 2 mph. Anyone else think this would be a good add on.
Thanks for posting about this. Could you clarify exactly what you are suggesting? Are you asking that dog walking become it's own activity type on Strava?
We do have have an existing suggestion to add canicross type activities here.

I think a walk is a walk. When I run with my dog I also run slower than I otherwise would and make a lot of stops, yet I don't think it is a good idea to introduce a new Dog Run activity type. Should we also add a Dog Trail Run and a Dog Hike?
Also ad running with the dog and cycling with the dog.
I understand some saying a walk is a walk. But to some people who do a walk for pace due to possibly many different reasons. (Ability and disability spring to mind) So dog walking good be a good activity for some to differentiate there activity and even track the amount of distance/time they are doing with there dog. Separate to say a walk by themselves or a friend etc.
